Launched in 1995, the Porsche 993-gen 911 Turbo followed in the footsteps of the 964 and added a new front end design and more of, well, everything.
The 993 Turbo is propelled by a 3.6-liter twin turbo flat-six, with a total output of 408 PS (402 HP) and 539 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque, a staggering amount for a car that weighs just 3,300 lbs (1,496 kg). To keep things as tidy as possible, Porsche added an all-wheel drive system, which was a first for the Turbo.
This all-black example is being auctioned off on Bring a Trailer, and aside from having just 21,000 miles (33,796 km) on the clock, it also packs a 6-speed manual gearbox that’ll satisfy driving enthusiasts.
Other features include the Turbo S front splitter and oil cooler, H&R shocks and larger sway bars, carbon fiber interior trim, chrome exhaust tips, black 996 turbo twist wheels, new tweeters and Turbo-embossed floor mats. As for flaws, the ad states that there’s minor wear on the driver’s seat bolster and that the back lighting on the digital display functions intermittently.
According to the seller, only 150 miles (241 km) were added on the clock since he/she came into possession of the car, which allegedly has not been driven in either rain nor snow.
After a brief search on Autotrader, we found that most 1996 911 Turbo models with reasonably low mileage tend to cost between $150,000 and $200,000, or about as much as a brand new, 2018 911 Turbo. Which is no surprise, really, as the 993 was the last air-cooled 911 and is held in high regard by Porschephiles, so despite been more than two decades old, it commands very high prices.
